can someone clarify this?

Probability of selecting student from senior class 60/1000 ==> CORRECT

but it also says,
the probability of selecting a member of the pair from junior class is 1/800.
Isn't it 60/800 ?

Hi rkatl

The prob for selecting a senior from the class is number of senior siblings/ total number of students, hence 60/1000.

The second probability is 1/800 because the total set of juniors is 800 and there is only 1 matching sibling for the senior you have selected (although just selecting any sibling would be 60/800)
